Lady Gaga and Mick Jagger in surprise appearance on ‘SNL’ to show their support for Bad Bunny

Bad Bunny took on the roles of both host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,” and he received support from several A-listers, including a surprising appearance by Lady Gaga. She introduced the reggaeton superstar’s performance using her best Spanish accent, alongside Mick Jagger and Pedro Pascal.

Before Bunny performed “Monaco” live for the first time from his recently released album “Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana,” Gaga called on “Puerto Rico and everyone in the crew” to kick off a performance of “Un Preview.”

Amid a backdrop of atmospheric red lighting, Bad Bunny, accompanied by the mechanical toy horse featured in the music video for the single, delivered an energetic performance of “Un Preview.” Later, he went on to recreate the video starring Al Pacino for “Monaco.”

In addition to his musical performances, Bad Bunny had a surprise guest appearance from Jagger, marking the Rolling Stones frontman’s first time on “SNL” since 1986. This came just two days after the Rolling Stones’ New York concert, where they had an unexpected duet with Lady Gaga.

Jagger made an unexpected entrance into one of the sketches featuring Bunny and “SNL” cast member Marcello Hernández. The sketch depicted a heated argument on the set of a Spanish-language soap opera, with Jagger appropriately taking on the role of a mediating father. However, the scene concluded with a dramatic twist as he dramatically slapped both actors. Jagger also joined Bunny in another sketch, portraying not-so-holy nuns in a parody of “Sister Act 3.”

Although this marked Bad Bunny’s first time hosting “Saturday Night Live,” he previously made his debut on the show in April 2020 with a cameo during one of the pandemic’s “Saturday Night Live at Home” episodes. He later returned as a musical guest in 2021 when “Bridgerton’s” Regé-Jean Page took on hosting duties.

The 49th season of “Saturday Night Live” kicked off this past weekend with Pete Davidson as the host and Ice Spice as the musical guest. The episode generated several viral moments, including a surprise appearance by Taylor Swift and her rumored partner, Travis Kelce.

Bad Bunny’s SNL appearance coincides with the announcement of his “Most Wanted Tour,” set to begin on February 21 at Utah’s Delta Center and encompass multiple stops in major North American cities, including Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, with the tour concluding on May 26 in Miami.

The Puerto Rican superstar also recently appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on October 19, where he discussed his experience hosting SNL. He shared that the week-long process of putting the show together was both exciting and tiring, quipping to Fallon, “I need to sleep. I’ve been enjoying the process, working with the cast and producers. The vibe is very cool, and I’m grateful for the opportunity.”
